Learning Activity : We are going assign students into groups of three. In the groups they will select a topic from a list and they will begin to identify what that topic means to them. For example: your personal hero, what makes him a hero to you. The group will compile three attributes that they have in common. And why they are important to them. A paragraph will be created for each attribute describing why those attributes were selected and why it’s important to them.

1. The first mark will be assigned individually based on the quality of the paragraph produced (10%)

2. The second mark will be a group mark based on wiki contributions (10%)

3. The third mark will be a reflectiveself-assessment (10%)
